She was self-soothing, without the teacher’s help, and she was able to sit up and do tasks for longer periods.

Autism And Dating
Dating. We wonder about it for our children, and for ourselves if we happen to be single parents. The fear of letting ourselves or our children get involved with people outside of our closest circles can be incredible, even when our children understand societal norms and customs. When we have children who have Autism, the fear intensifies because we know that they may not read signals properly, and that their emotional and social intelligence is different from their neurotypical peers.
What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
ABA is based on the science of learning and behavior, using techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior. The name Applied Behavior Analysis replaced the term 'behavior modification' because that term wasn't consistent with relevant behavior-environment interactions.

How does Autism Spectrum Disorder affect siblings?

How CalmWear Works
The CalmWear™ Hug
Developed by a caring parent of a child with Autism, CalmWear has vastly improved the day to day lives of this family, and thousands more. After a frustrating and exhausting search could not produce a sensory garment that was suitable for special needs children, one that would enable them to self-regulate and could be worn discreetly all day, every day….CalmWear was born.
Since CalmWear's inception, the life changing effect it has had for families across the globe speak volumes - the testimonials, the affirmations, the successes and the stories, have made this the most incredibly rewarding and uplifting adventure we could hope for. What started as a passion product to help one family, continues to improve the lives of those living with sensory needs, the world over!
Based on research and studies on the complexity of sensory compression that was first brought to our attention by famous Professor and Author, Temple Grandin - herself on the autism spectrum - CalmWear offers the perfect amount of sensory input to calm the system, and allows the wearer to focus, learn, and thrive.
It is not a cure, but it IS a solution to meeting one's sensory needs 24 hours a day!
Let's Talk About Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)
Dear Parents, this one's for you. Especially you! We see you! We see you fighting battles that no one else understands! We see you crying because you are overwhelmed. We see you looking for help, but being afraid to ask. We see how hard it is to be a parent of a child with Autism.
Autism is nothing to fear. Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition that includes impairments in social interaction and developmental language and communication skills with rigid, repetitive behaviors.
Asperger’s Syndrome, also known as Asperger’s, is a developmental disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. Asperger’s is one of several subtypes of Autism that have been put into the grouping of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Asperger’s, however, doesn’t come with a simple fix either, and some of the symptoms can be difficult to manage.
